The Disrupted brings the impoverishing effects of globalization on all walks of life into intimate detail….What is different about this film is that it squarely takes aim at the beleaguered middle class – whose lives have increasingly been pushed to the margins since the recession of 2008-2009.

Producer-Director Sarah Colt [turns] a spare, sobering…black-and-white look at the 1890s into a colorful rumination on where America stands here and now…If the past really is truly prologue, watching the film sounds some cautionary notes.


The Gilded Age is…stunning…This time period stands as proof that we’ve been to this brink, tumbled over its cliff, survived and returned. Perhaps we’ll learn from the mistakes of yesteryear’s titans. But that requires scratching beneath the veneer of gold that seeks to distract us, even now.



#1 Must-see. As much a cultural history of art and commerce as it is a compelling biography of Mickey Mouse’s driven-to-success creator… [This] tremendous profile brings to complicated life the 20th century visionary whose global empire of family entertainment still resonates powerfully.

Walt Disney is a definitive and fascinating study…Colt shows us how he changed the world as a byproduct of creating worlds of his own.

Director Sarah Colt [has] dedicated an impressive amount of time to chronicling the 20th century’s most brilliant, most creative, most egotistical and most anti-union industrialists.

Taking the familiar story of Ford’s rise to fame as he helped forge the road map for life in the 20th century, Colt makes it feel new again by presenting the Ford Motor Co. founder in all of his fascinating complexity. A compelling psychological biography.

Produced by veteran filmmaker Sarah Colt, Henry Ford…paints a picture of someone not only in the grip of megalomania, but paranoia, isolation and finally dementia. She also never once loses sight of his singular human flaw — that he was an avowed man of the people, and for the people, but who in the end wanted nothing to do with people…Excellent, engrossing, fair-minded and richly illustrated.



A beautiful and gently rendered film … as quiet and unassuming as its subject matter. The effect is alluring and beatific.

Gripping…heartbreakingly potent…Writer-Director Sarah Colt emphasizes the Anytown aspects of the disease, centering her film in sitcom-clean hamlets and suburbs.
